(7) The shot and javelin are the clear weak points in my heptathlon so when Barrie thought of it [teaming up with Sayers] and brought it to me, it felt a stroke of genius for sure,” says Johnson-Thompson, who will compete in the British indoor championships in Sheffield this weekend and then the Birmingham indoor grand prix.
